"Josh Lefkowitz is smart, funny, with a gentle streak of hell-fire anger. My kind of guy!" -- Eric Bogosian
Access Theater, in association with Blue Coyote Theater Group, presents the NY premiere of Help Wanted: A Personal Search for Meaningful Employment at the Start of the 21st Century, Josh Lefkowitz's valentine to Spalding Gray.
Lefkowitz gives an epic, tour-de-force performance in an original and engaging show by this rising-star monologist. Fresh out of college, the writer/performer was a struggling actor, working as a parking lot attendant when he was introduced to the work of Spalding Gray. Gray's compelling and deeply personal monologues influenced Lefkowitz so greatly, that he embarked on a quest to meet his icon. A hilariously captivating look at hero worship and dissolution, Help Wanted... was part of the Single File Festival in Chicago (where it was called "bristling smart" by the Chicago Sun Times), part of Woolly Mammoth's Playground Playwrights Series and received a workshop production during Dixon Places' Under Construction Series.
Added performances on Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 28.
